Psalm 5, Lead Me In Your Righteousness
1, Give ear to my words, O LORD; consider my groaning.
2, Give attention to the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You do I pray.
3, O LORD, in the morning You hear my voice; in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for You and watch.
4, For You are not a God who delights in wickedness; evil may not dwell with You.
5, The boastful shall not stand before Your eyes; You hate all evildoers.
6, You destroy those who speak lies; the LORD abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.
7, But I, through the abundance of Your steadfast love, will enter Your house. I will bow down toward Your holy temple in the fear of You.
8, Lead me, O LORD, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way straight before me.
9, For there is no truth in their mouth; their inmost self is destruction; their throat is an open grave; they flatter with their tongue.
10, Make them bear their guilt, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, for they have rebelled against you.
11, But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them ever sing for joy, and spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your name may exult in You.
12, For You bless the righteous, O LORD; You cover him with favor as with a shield.
